* [[BigEater Kid Flash]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8680098/1/Charades Charades]]'' is under so much stress he doesn't react when his friends want to go for pizza. Artemis is extremely disturbed over it and Robin outright incredulous.
** Also, after the Team [[spoiler: managed to rescue Robin from being BuriedAlive]], Batman sincerely thanks them. Kid Flash's mental reaction is flat-out "ohmygosh the end is NEAR!".

* ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'': Several years ago, 3D Realms employee George Broussard said that ''Duke Nukem Forver'' would be released "when pigs fly." On September 1, 2010, however, his Twitter account [[CallBack linked to a picture of a flying pig]], and a playable demo of ''Duke Nukem Forever'' (whose development had been picked up by Gearbox) was on display at Penny Arcade Expo.

** Played with in the short ''Crowing Pains'', where Foghorn Leghorn gets halfway through the phrase "I hope to be struck by lightning" when an ominous rumble of thunder and a lightning bolt appearing behind him forces him to reconsider.
** Another short, ''Fool Coverage'', ends with one big parade of the trope. Daffy is trying to convince Porky to buy insurance. In the process, Daffy runs into mishap after mishap, and this convinces Porky to sign. He then says all he needs to get a million dollars is to get a black eye. Daffy then notes that the policy [[ImpossibleInsurance has a list of impossible conditions]] (no pigs, but there is a stampede of wild elephants). Cue Daffy's chagrin when ''every single one'' of the conditions occur...''including'' the one he made up on the spot (one baby zebra).

** Another short, ''Fool Coverage'', In "The Trial of Mr. Wolf", the Big Bad Wolf gives a heavily-biased account of the events of ''Little Red Riding Hood'' that make him look good and makes Red Riding Hood and her grandmother look bad. At the end, the Wolf is surprised to see [[JokerJury the all-wolf jury]] looking skeptical. He declares "If I'm lyin', I hope to be run over by a street car!", whereupon a street car crashes through the wall of the courtroom and runs him over. The Wolf emerges from the rubble, and sheepishly admits he ''might'' have exaggerated.

* There's an [[http://www.snopes.com/quotes/mrgorsky.asp urban legend]] that when Neil Armstrong was a boy, he overheard his next door neighbors arguing loudly. The wife shouted at her husband, "I'll give you oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
** Johnny Carson told America in his monolog that NBC had given him a raise. "It was in my contract that I'd get a raise when people walked on the moon."
** Similarly, legend has it during one batting practice early in his career someone remarked that "they'll put a man on the moon before" then-San Francisco Giants pitcher [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaylord_Perry Gaylord Perry]] hits a homer (major league pitchers aren't usually known for their batting prowess). The most often-cited source of the quote is Alvin Dark, who managed the Giants from 1961-1964. It's not known for sure if Dark or anyone else actually made this claim, but Perry did hit his first career homer about twenty minutes after the P.A. at Candlestick Park announced that the ''Eagle'' had landed on the moon.
